Liam Payne reveals he hasnt written a song since Bear was born as he admits feeling pressured to give up work

Liam Payne has confessed that he hasnt written a single track since son Bear was born.

Hes been globe-trotting and performing in the last year, having recently released his new collab with J Balvin, Familiar, but Liam is yet to set foot back inside a studio following the birth of his son 14 months ago.

The singer admitted that despite his busy year, he hasnt spent it coming up with new tunes while at Radio 1s Biggest Weekend.

To be fair, he hasnt had a writing credit on a song since he co-wrote Strip That Down with Ed Sheeran.

Mike Sabath wrote Familiar, For You was penned by Ali Payami, Ali Tamposi and Andrew Watt, and despite everyone thinking Bedroom Floor was about Cheryl, it was actually written by Charlie Puth, Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Ammar Malik, and Steve Mac.

Liams new album is due out in September, so we still have a fair bit of time to wait, but it would seem its not because hes still writing new tracks for it.

Speaking to the BBC at the Biggest Weekend in Swansea, Liam was asked if his lyrics would be less risque now that hes a dad, and said that his lyrics might change once he starts writing for the second album.

My songs are about making the Bears, not looking after the Bears, he joked. That might change on the second album, I havent written a song since he was born, I havent been in the studio so well see what happens.

What the heck? What has he been doing all this time?! Well, hes been busy thats for sure as he admitted that over the last year hes felt pressured to give up work to spend time with his son.

I was pressured by the media that I should be at home with my son, but life goes on, it doesnt stop, he said. Id rather inspire my son, Id love spending all my time on the sofa with him, but Im showing him you work for what you have.

The little lad turned one in March, and he had a theme for the party – it was bears.

We had a lovely little party for him, Liam confessed. I had to go away the next day, which was a bit gutting, but he had a longer birthday out of it.

Bears was the simple theme we went for. He had giant bears and little toys for the kids to play on, I was sat on the kiddie table while all the adults were over there.
